Registrations and Academic Records
Current students can apply for an official transcript via Student Portal, under “Resources”, click on “Transcript and Form Requests”.
If you are an alumnus and do not have access to Student Portal anymore, please make the request using the link below.
It is not unusual that students who want to apply for graduate schools or the Post-Graduate Work Permit need a document confirming that they have completed their program before they officially graduate in June or October. Students in need of such a document can apply for the Verification of Program Completion letter (formerly known as the Verification of Graduation letter; $12 per copy).
Students must also apply for graduation in order to officially graduate. Please go to the Convocation webpage to fill out the Application for Graduation Form (free of charge), so that you will be included on the graduation list!
Current students can apply for a VPC via Student Portal, under “Resources”, click on “Transcript and Form Requests”.
If you are an alumnus and do not have access to Student Portal anymore, please make the request using the link below. At the step of “Select Form”, select Verification of Program Completion.
The QECO letter is required for Ontario Teacher Qualification Evaluations. Please only apply for it when you are applying to become a certified elementary or secondary school teacher in Canada.
International students do not need this letter to apply for the Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP). Please note the application fee is non-refundable if you apply by mistake.

- Students must have a good reason to make the request. Examples of reasonable grounds: cancellation of (or failure to schedule) a course required for graduation; extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control (e.g., illness).
Note: Normally requests will not be approved if acceptable alternative courses are scheduled.
- Student consults with the chair of the department regarding a suitable instructor.
- The instructor needs to agree and provide a course outline for the student.
- Student completes the application form and asks the instructor and the chair of the department to sign it.
- Student submits the completed reading course application form & course outline to [email protected] for academic screening. Note: Applications must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar at least two weeks before the last day of registration (for each academic term).
- The Registrar’s Office will notify the Student Account Office to add the $40 processing fee to the student’s account. Students can then pay the fee via Student Portal.
